When a secret tourist spot is shared with the world, is it no longer a secret?

It doesn't really matter, and it might not be a "secret" for much longer thanks to Insider's list featuring "The best-kept secret tourist spot in every state."

What would typically be considered a good secret tourist spot? Well, it would be the kind of place when describing your own excursion to a friend or family member you wrap it all up by telling them "just Google it."

That's why Wisconsin's best-kept secret tourist spot is kind of awesome.

It's the kind of destination that requires internet searches before packing up your things and going.

Located 8 hours from Rockford, the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Ice Caves in Wisconsin is where envious vacations are born.

Sure it's not some tropical vacation but it's so cool, people will be asking you all about it.

Insider:

In the warmer months, visitors can kayak through the stunning natural cliff formations of Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Ice Caves. In the winter, brave souls can walk across a frozen Lake Superior to explore the icicles that often form in the caves.

You should know, the mainland Ice Caves aren't always available for visitors (like right now) due to unsafe conditions but keep up with Apostle Islands website for more.
